What are plans and elevations?
These are two-dimensional views of a three-dimensional object.
They are the mathematical shapes you would see taking away all the “art” – so no colour, shade, vanishing points, etc.

This is the shape you would see if you were looking directly down on an object.
Commonly known as a bird’s-eye-view.

The shape you would see if you were stood directly in front of the object.
- Side elevation
The shape you would see if you were stood directly facing the side of the object.
